Equal Opportunity Commitment

The mission of Walla Walla University is to foster the unique gifts of every individual within this Christian community of faith and discovery. The University adheres to all federal and state civil rights laws and regulations prohibiting discrimination in public and private universities of higher education (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Washington State House Bill 1751). While Walla Walla University is a religiously qualified institution of higher education it does not discriminate whether explicitly or implicitly against students, or applicants for admission on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, honorably discharged veteran or military status, pregnant or parenting statuses, the presence of neuro diverse abilities (sensory, mental, or physical abilities), or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability.

In keeping with its commitment to maintaining an environment that is free of unlawful discrimination and with its legal obligations, Walla Walla University maintains a policy prohibiting unlawful harassment and sexual misconduct including, but not limited to sex-based intimidation and harassment, hate crime, domestic and dating violence, stalking, and assault.

Administrative Policy

Because of possible fluctuation in Walla Walla University's financial position and
the economy, the Administration and Board of Trustees reserve the right to adjust
costs and policies throughout the school year to supersede published statements.

COVID Environment Administrative Policy

Tuition and general fees will cover the added cost of the adjustments and flexibility
related to COVID-19, including the university's investments in technology upgrades,
surveillance testing, contact tracing, isolation and quarantine spaces, and other
needs. No tuition or general fee refunds beyond the university's stated tuition refund
schedule will be given based upon how courses are completed. Because costs
associated with online labs often equal or exceed in person costs, fees for online labs
will generally be charged at the same rate, Lab fees will be adjusted for online labs
with significantly lower costs.
